2013 Institute of Legal Studies International Symposium Welcomes UA Law Professors
Next week Professors Susan A. Schneider and Christopher R. Kelley will travel to Yeungnam University in Seoul, S. Korea to participate in the 2013 Institute of Legal Studies International Symposium. The Symposium will focus on conservation and conversion of farm land from the perspective of public interests. Symposium leaders Professor Hejung Kim, Director of Yeungnam University's Institute of Legal Studies and Professor Taehaun Keum , Director of the Yeungnam Institute for Korean Agricultural and Food Law hope that the event will be an opportunity to reflect upon the present and future of Korean and U.S. farm land.
This symposium also celebrates the creation of the Institute for Korean Agricultural and Food Law which was established by Yeungnam University School of Law in October of 2012. The institute will operate under the direction of LL.M. Alumnus Taehaun Keum who completed his Master of Laws in Agricultural and Food Law in 2011 at the University of Arkansas School of Law. We look forward to developing a collaborative relationship with Yeungnam University, and will be posting more information on the Symposium here in the near future.
